My dad’s all-time favorite movie is “It’s a Wonderful Life” and we watch it every Christmas. It will be so fun to pay homage to the 70th anniversary of this special film at the Cinema Center! There will be free hot cocoa and a cash bar, and you can bring winter gear to donate … what could be better?
